MUNICIPAL OFFICEES 



i§r6. 

The City of Chicago was organized under the general incorporation act in 
April, 1875, and consequently no election was held in November, 1875; but the per- 
sons then in office held over until May, 1876. Under the new law the city was di- 
vided into eighteen wards. 

Mayor— MONROE HEATH, *H. D. COLVIN, *THOMAS HOYNE.

*NoTE.— The order passed by the City Council, p' oviding tor an election for city oflBcerg 
under the (new) general incorporation act, omitted all reference to the office of Mayor. Not- 
withstanding' this omission, and the apparent absence of any authority, a popular vote was 
taken for Mayor at the election,, and Thomas Hoyne received 33,061 votes, 819 scattering. 

The canvass of the returns being made to the Council, the vote given fotf Mayor was disre- 
garded; but the new Council, at its first meeting, decided to canvass the returns, and, having 
done so, declared Mr. Hoyne duly elected Mayor. 

Mr. Co' vin. the incumbent, then declining to yield possession of his office on the plea that he 
was entitled to "hold over" tinder the law, a reference was had to the courts of law, resulting in 
the virtual failure of each of the contestants to sustain his position. 

In consequence, a special election for Mayor was ordered by the Council, which was held 
July 13, 1876. at which Monroe Heath was duly elected. 

tOhas. Tar, low was elected to iiU a vacancy caused by the resignation of J. H. Hildretb.

my approval, an ordinance passed by your 
Honorable Body at its last regular meeting 
granting the right to the Chicago, Burlington 
and Quincy Railroad Company to run a 



April 8. 1

[1901 



switch tracl\ into certain industries east of 
Rockwell street, for the following reasons: 
It has been the i)olicy of the present ad- 
ministration not to permit the granting of 
switch track franchises for a longer time 
than ten years when laid on the surface, or 
twenty years when elevated. The grant of 
the privilege in the present ordinance is per- 
petual. Moreover it is against the policy of 
the present administration to permit switch 
tracks to be laid either on the surface or on 
elevated structures otf or across city streets 
and alleys without the payment of compen- 
sation to the city. In the present ordinance 
the compensation is made specifically to cease 
whenever the tracks shall have been elevated. 

I would therefore recommend a reconsidera- 
tion of the vote by which the present ordi 
nance was passed and its repassage with the 
following amendments: 

Amend said ordinance by striking out all 
of Section tw© (2) beginning with the word 
•'until" in line six (6) of said section to the 
word "elevated" in line seven (7) of said 
section. 

Further amend said ordinance by adding 
at the end of Section one (1) the following 
words: "The rights and privileges herein 
granted shall cease and determine at the ex- 
piration of twenty (30) years from the date 
of the passage of this ordinance." 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Foreman moved to reconsider the vote 
by which the ordinance referred to in the 
vet® message of His Honor, the Mayor, was 
passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Foreman moved that the ordinance be 
amended in accordance with the veto message 
of His Honor, the Mayor. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Foreran moved the passage of the 
ordinance as amended. 

The motion prevailed, and the ordinance 
was passed hy j'eas and nays as follows:

four facades and the dome of the building, 
are either substituted by sectional columns or 
cut out of the plans, and that the finish of 
the granite surfaces, designed to reflect the 
best skill of the granite-cutter, has been 
changed to an ordinary dressing — below the 
standard required for ordinary buildings ; and 

"Whereas, It is represented that these 
changes are not demanded by any exigency of 
circumstances or from any disposition of the 
general government to economize on the ex- 
pense of the structure; therefore, be it 

^'Rewlved, That the'City Council of Chicago 
hereby petiiion the Honorable Secretary of 
the Treasury to insist upon the enforcement 
of the specifications that will preserve the 
artistic character of the buil , ing as originally 
planned; and be it further 

Resolved, That a c py of these preambles 
and resolutions be forwarded by the City 
Clerk to the Secretary of the Treasury." 

The first article in the preamble expresses 
truly the purpose of this department, which 
was and is to design and construct a federal 
building in Chicago of the highest artistic 
excellence. 

It is true, as stated In the second paragraph 
of your preamble, that it has been found 
necessary to substitute columns in sections 
for the monolithic columns which were origi- 
nally contemplated. 

Two important reasons operated in favor 
of this substitution. The first reason was the 
ascertained certainty that the monoliths, if 
insisted upon, would involve serious delay in 
the final completion of the structure. The 
second reason was the prohibitory notice 
served upon the contractor, which I here 
quote : 

"Department of Public Works, Chicago. 
Bureau of Streets, M. J. Doherty, Supt. Chi- 
cago, July 9, 1900. John Pierce, Esq., Clark 
and Adams streets. Dear Sir— Referring to 
your letter of recent date, in relation to haul- 
ing heavy stones over the street for use in the 
new postoffice. permit me to state that, owing 
to their weight, it will be impossible for me 
to allow you to haul them over any of the 
public streets. Very truly, M. J. Doherty, 
Supt. of Streets." 



4 [1901 

While this modification has been made, it 
is believed that it will not materially detract 
from the finish and high artistic excellence of 
the exterior of the building. In this connec- 
tion I beg to call attention to the Parthenon, 
at Athens. Of that building the Century 
Encyclopedia says: 

"In refinement of design, and perfection of 
execution, this structure has never been 
paralleled." 

In the American Encyclopedia it is said 
that: 

"The Parthenon was built in the best period 
of architecture, and under the inspiration of 
the highest genius in art." 

Nevertheless, the magnificent columns sur- 
rounding it and imparting to it the highest 
elements of classic beauty were noi monoliths, 
but were composed of eleven sections, one 
superimposed upon the other. 

In response to the further expression in the 
second paragraph of your preamble, wherein 
the suggestion is made that the change in 
cutting the granite surface brings the work 
" below the standard required for ordinary 
buildings," I quote from a report of the 
Architect: 

"No changes have been made that are in 
any way detrimental to the best practical and 
artistic results; the sole object being to pro- 
duce a building that will have the best pos- 
sible exterior and interior for the 14,000,000 
that has been appropriated for the complete 
structure." 

It is of course to be kept in mind that the 
beauty and grace of the interior ought to cor- 
respond to the style and nobility of the ex- 
terior, and as apropos to this I make a further 
quotation from the Architect's report: 

"The work so far completed and con- 
tracted shows a saving of 1239,603.58 from 
my original estimates for the exterior of the 
structure; all of which becomes available 
from the appropriation to perfect the inte- 
rior, for which contracts will be let during 
this year so that the wcrk will continue un- 
interruptedly." 

I beg to add, on behalf of this Department, 
that the pride and interest felt by its officers 
in making the new building in Chicago an 
edifice worthy of the city and honorable to 
the government cannot be surpassed by the 
desires of any member of your Honorable 
Council, or by the hopes and wishes of the 
citizens whom you have the honor to repre- 
sent. 

In conclusion I submit herewith a copy of

a report made by the Architect in charge, 
under date of March 21st. If this report 
covers more ground than your resolutions 
contemplate, it may nevertheless be of in- 
terest. 

Respectfully yours,

Treasury Department, \ 
Office of the Chicago Building, >• 
Washington, March 21, 1901. ) 

To the Honorable, the Secretary of the T7'easury: 

Sm — Pursuant with your verbal instruc- 
tions, I have the honor to herewith submit 
the following brief report on the Chicago 
building. 

12th of March, 1896, I was appointed archi- 
tect with the understanding that the site 
should be turned over t© me, cleared of 
the old building in one year. 

16th November, 1896, plans and estimates 
for the proposed building were approved by 
Honorable J. G. Carlisle, then Secretary of 
the Treasury, the Postmaster-General, and 
the Secretary of the Interior, the Committee 
appointed by Congress. 

4th August, 1897, the contract for the 
founilation was ^et to iVicArtnur liroiaers 
for $208,453.00. 

16th September, 1897, the wrecking com- 
pany not having completed the removal of 
the old building, being in fact several months 
in arrears as to time, an arrangement was 
made to give McArthur Brothers 12,000 extra 
for completing the wrecking c®ntract and 
taking the site as it ttood. 

16th September, 1897, a reduction of $3,000 
was agreed upon with McArthur Brothers for 
changing the thickness of s©me of the lay- 
ers of stone, which in no way affected the 
eflBciency of the foundations. 

April 7, 1898, contract for the general con- 
struction of the exterier was let to John 
Pierce for $1,987,000.00, which was $124,277.98 
less than the estimate. By the terms of the 
contract he was to have access to the prem- 
ises immediately, and the foundations were 
to be completed and the site turned over to 
him July 1st, 1898. But owing to delays it 



was not until October 28, 1898, that the foun- 
dations were couipleted at a total cost of 
$207,453.00, which was $1,000 less than the 
contract, and $19,365.60 less than the estimate. 

On that date, to-wit, October 28, 1898, 
foundations and site were finally turned over 
to John Pierce, general contractor for the 
superstructure. From then until last Novem- 
ber, as is notorious, the work was seriously 
hampered by strikes and labor troubles. 
Since November, 1900, nothing has been 
spared to push the work with all possible 
dispatch (comparatively little work has been 
done ©n the structure as nothing could be 
gained thereby) all energies having been 
directed to producing the granite, which was 
far behind the other departments of the 
structure. 

In order to facilitate the work, an agree- 
ment was made February 2^ last, by vhich 
the contractor utilizes not only the Mount 
Waldo granite and plant, but Mosquito 
Mountain, Hallowell and Fox Island if ad- 
visable. This agreement was made with- 
out additional expense to the government, 
although his original proposal demanded 
$200,000 extra for Fox Island granite and 
$4b0,000 extra f&r Hallowell granite. 

In working out the details of the building, 
as is always the case in large structures, 
many modifications lor the benefit of the 
building and the government have developed, 
.a anticipatien of which, the following clause 
was put in the contract: 

"The architect shall have the power to 
make any changes in the construction, or 
additions or deviations from the plans and 
specifications he may think desirable or nec- 
essary during the progress of the work, with- 
out in any respect varying this agreement or 
impairing its force, and in the event of any 
such addition or deviation from the plans 
and specifications, such further time shall be 
allowed for the completion of the work as the 
architect shall decide, and such sums of 
money shall be added to or subtracted from 
the amount of the contract price according to 
agreement, or to the schedule. No extras, 
or additions, or deductions of any kind shall 
be recognized or allowed, unless the same 
have been expressly ordered by the architect 
in writing and payments for same expressly 
agreed to in writing." 

Since any modification in the contract re- 
quires the acceptance ©f the sureties, involv- 
ing considerable tinae and trouble, I have 
adopted the method of accumulating the 
changes that develop, notifying the contractor 
to make the changes, the price to be adjusted

later. Thus, on October 3, 1898, changes that 
materially benefitted the building and re- 
sulted in a net saving to the gorernnient of 
$63,000 were adjusted. For instance, I found 
upon investigating Mt. Waldo granite in use, 
that a better effect would be produced with a 
"pointed" instead of a "cut" surface for the 
rusticated portions. Also found that the 
same effect was gained by reducing the fine- 
ness of the cutting of some of the upper por- 
tions of the building. These changes in cut- 
ting, which' were in no way detrimental to 
the building and enhanced its beauty, saved 
about $40,000.00. 

In the contract itself, the right is reserved 
with the Government to omit a number ®f 
enumerated items and receive stipulated 
amounts for such omissions, among which 
are the carving in the tyrapani and the letter- 
ing on the frieze. I decided the building 
would look better with plain surfaces in these 
places, and reduced the cost of the work in 
the sum of $18,904.80, stipulated for in tbe 
contract. 

The postoffice officials recommended that 
the four main skylights be raised one story at 
a saving in cost of about $10,000. Since then, 
unimportant modifiations have been made 
which I believe to be in tha interest of the 
structure and a gain in economy. 

The original plans called for large columns 
in one piece, weighing about seventy-five tons 
each. At the time the contract was made I 
had serious doubts as to the advisability ef 
trying to get such stones, and insertea in the 
contract a stipulation that the columns might 
be entirely omitted and an allowance made of 
$10,000 each. Last November, when the 
granite cutters' strike had been finally ad- 
justed, I went over the whole granite situa- 
tion, and had the granite inspector visit 
several quarries and report on the possibility 
of securing such stone on time. He reported 
that only one quarry in New England could 
probably produce them. I found that quarry 
had been unsuccessful so far in producing 
similar columns for another contract^ one 
column had been nearly completed but broke 
on the lathe, and although they had been at 
work for a year, no time could be safely 
set when any of the columns would be de- 
livered. I found that it would cost more to 
cut the columns in large sections than in one 
piece, and the handling of the one piece was 
much greater than the sections. The con- 
tractor forwarded me the following commu- 
nication : 



"Department of Public Works, Chicago, 
Bureau t»f Streets, M. J. Doherty, Supt., Chi- 
cago, July 9, 1900. John Pierce, Esq., Clark 
and Adams street. Dear Sir— Referring to 
your letter of recent date, in relating to haul- 
ing heavy stones over the street for use in 
new postoffice, permit me to state that,^wing 
to their w ight, it will be impossible for me 
to allow you to haul them over any of the 
public streets. Very truly, M. J. Doherty, 
Supt. of Streets." 

From which it was evident that there was a 
very strong probability of a clash between 
the city officials and the contractor, which 
'could only result in delays at a most critical 
time in the work._ The base of these columns 
will be about fifty feet above the street, and 
preserving the same finish, it is not of much 
importance to the appearance of the building 
whether the columns are in one piece or 
several. 

After mature deliberation and much fig- 
uring and estimating, I finally succeeded in 
making an agreement with the contractor 
that the columns should be cut in pieces 
weighing about ten tons each, and got an 
allowance of $31,960.00 from his contract, 
which, in my opinion, is a very advantageous 
settlement for the Government. 

Modifications adjusted to date show a net 
saving to the Government of $95,960.00, which 
I hope will be materially increased before the 
building is completed. 

No changes have been made that are in any 
way detrimental to the best practical and 
artistic results, the sole object being to pro- 
duce a building that will have the best pos- 
sible exterior and interior for the $4,000,000.00 
that has been appropriated for the complete 
structure. 

The work so far completed and contracted 
shows a saving of $239,603.58 from my original 
estimates for the exterior of the structure; 
all of which becomes available from the ap- 
propriation to perfect the interior — for which 
contracts will be let during this year, so that 
the work will continue uninterruptedly. 

From a careful investigation of the condi- 
tion of the work, and the plans laid out by 
the contractor, it is safe to estimate that the 
building, except the dome, will be under roof 
next January, and the dome completed as 
soon thereafter as the weather will permit. 

Respectfully, 
(Signed) Henry Ives Cobb, 

Architect.

His Honor, the Mayor, submitted bis an-

Mayor's Office, \ 
Chicago, April 8, 1901. \ 

To the Honorable^ the City Council of the City 
of Ch icago : 

Gentlemen — In the annual message I sub- 
mitted to your Honorable Body at the end of 
the fiscal year of 1899, I felt it my duty to 
call your attention to the financial conditio 
of the City of Chicago, my object, being, 
possible, to direct the thoughts of the gen- 
eral public to the difficulties encountered by 
the City Government in providing citizens 
with the necessities and comforts of life 
which they count upon receiving at our hands 
and for which they pay their hard earned 
taxes. 

Until there is a general awakening of Chi- 
cago's taxpaying public to the meagreness of 
the city revenues, the demand for all those 
things novv counted as necessities in a great 
city may as well remain unvoiced. It is not 
enough to cavil and complain. The remedy 
is not to be found in abuse or fault finding. 
Not only are these methods harmful to the 
city and unpromising of results, but they are 
utterly lacking in the old-time spirit of Chi 
cago. What Chicago needs to-day is less 
abuse and more patriotism, less criticism and 
more enterprise, less esthetic fault-finding 
and more broad-gauge determination to right 
civic conditions. 

A year ago we hoped Chicago was begin- 
ning to see its way out of the financial woods. 
The ridiculously low aggregate of taxes 
furnished for so many years to the 
city t'<9r corporate purposes promised 
largely to bo increased, owing to the in- 
creased genera assessirient under the new 
law. While the am©unt raised by taxation 
would still be insufficient to provide all those- 
things the citizens o^ a great metropolis have 
the right to expect from their municipal 
government, still the improvement promised 
to be marked. The citizens of Chicago seenned 
at last to have come to realize that the only- 
way in which they could get good city govern- 
ment was by providing their city officials 
with the means to give good government. 
Taxation for corporate purposes promised at 
least to approximate a respectable sum, and 
the inducement was held out to public-spirited 
citizens to seek with renewed zeal and energy 
the power of issuing bonds with whose pro- 
ceeds permanent improvements could be paid 
for in order that all current revenues might 
be applied to current needs.

In this hope, however, we were doomed to 
l)itter disappoiatnient. Of all the taxing 
bodies in Cook County, the City of Chicago 
and its subordinate bodies, the Board of 
Education and the Library Board, were the 
only taxing bodies which failed to derive real 
benefit from the comparatively large assess- 
ment of 1899. 

Under the law prior to 1900 the city based 
its appropriation upon the assessment of the 
preceding year, estimating of course that the 
receipts of the current year would at least 
€qual those of the preceding year. In this 
manner in the spring of 1899 the city made 
its appropriations, basing its estimate of re- 
ceipts from taxation upon the assessment of 
1898. In the fall of 1899, acting under the 
new revenue law, the Board of Assessors 
and the Board of Review largely increased 
the assessed valuation of property within 
the limits of Cook County. While n© 
■other taxing body in the County had 
so great need of an increase of reve- 
nue, the City of Chicago having already 
passed its appropriation bill for the year, was 
not able to take advantage of this greater as- 
sessment. The revenues from taxation of all 
other taxing bodies within Cook County, 
however, were greatly enlarged and citizens 
were compelled to pay an exhorbitant tax 
rate. 

When the Spring of 1900 arrived the city 
governnrient in passing its appropriation bill 
based its estimated receipts from the tax levy 
upon the theory that the assessed valuation 
of that year would certainly be no less than 
the assessed valuation of 1899. Figuring 
upon this basis it was estimated that the rev- 
■enue of the city from taxation would approx- 
imate $6,593,751.60, and upon this basis were 
made the appropriations for the maintenance 
■of the city government for the year 1900. 
When the year had been half spent a rumor 
feecame current that the Board of Assessors 
and Board of Review contemplated a re- 
■ductien of the assessed valuation of Cook 
County. A reduction of the assessed valua- 
tion naturally meant a reduction of income 
from taxation. A reduced income naturally 
jneant the necessity for retrenchment in ex- 
penditures. There were no means of learn- 
ing how much of a cut the two boards con- 
templated: whatever it was to be, however, 
it became necessary to meet it by a reduction 
of expenses. In every department of the 
city gOTernment, except in the Department 



of Street and Alley Cleaning, a very decided 
cut was made. At the time the protests 
from members of your Honorable Body as 
well as from the general public were both 
loud and frequent. The wisdom of the ex- 
ecutive action, however, was shown when the 
assessment of . 1900 finally came from the 
hands of the Board of Equalization and it 
was learned the revenues of Chicago from 
taxation instead of being $6,593,751.60 would 
be only $5,365,378.00. 

The City of Chicago received no actual 
benefit from the increased assessment of 1899; 
rather it suffered an absolute hardship. From 
a careful reading of the law your Honorable 
Body figured this assessment would certainly 
stand fer more than one year, and you based 
the city's appropriations upon this assess- 
ment. A full half year passed without even 
a word of warning. All the city departments 
acted upon the "theory they were entitled 
to expend on the public service the amounts 
appropriated to their uses. As a result, in 
the last half of the year it became necessary 
not only to run on a greatly reduced appro- 
priation, but also in part to make up the 
extra amount expended in the earlier months. 
Had not the administrative and legislative 
branches of the city government worked in 
complete harmony with each ©ther the un- 
expected action of the taxing boards would 
have resulted in an actual calamity to the 
city. 

The needs of Chicago in the year 1901 
naturally are greater than in the preceding 
year. The city grows at the rate of 100,000 
people a year and the city's necessities keep 
pace with its increase in population. 

In my message of last year I called the at- 
tention of your Honorable Body to the in- 
creased demands made upon the city govern- 
ment by its citizens. These demands are 
greater this year than they were in any pre- 
ceding year, and as the years pass by they 
will continue to grow. It follows, therefore, 
that the revenues of the municipality from 
its tax levy and its miscellaneous receipts 
should increase in equal proportion with the 
growth of the eity's population. 

Among the many things not to-day en- 
joyed by our citizens, but urged by them, are 
an increased number of public baths. The 
magnificent results following the installation 
of our present bath system has attracted new 
interest to this work, and additions to the

system are deiwanded in all sections of the 
city. There is also demand for emergency 
hospitals to afford proper care for those suf- 
fering from injury or suddenly stricken with 
disease, either far from home or far from a 
properly equipped hospital. The demand for 
small parks and playgrounds in the congested 
wards along the river continues. In these 
districts the children are forced by necessity 
to grow up with no other playground than 
the streets and the alleys, and the cry for 
more humane trtatmentof the city's youth is 
more insistent to-day than ever before. It is 
generally believed, and the belief is based on 
conioion sense, that by providing such breath- 
ing spots and recreation grounds, a long step 
will be taken toward reducing the number of 
youthful criminals. 

In 1900, when your Honorable Body, esti- 
mating the city's receipts from taxation upon 
the assessment of 1899, figured upon an in- 
crease of revenues of approximately one and 
a half million dollars, an appropriation of 
$100,000.00 was made with which to inaugu- 
rate the system of establishing small parks in 
the congested wards. This amount was 
counted as sufficient at least to make a 
beginning in the g©od work. The cut of the 
city's expenditures in 1900, however, of ne- 
cessity included this appropriation, and the 
city in this regard is as helpless to respond to 
the call of its citizens as ever. 

December 4, 1899, in accordance with au- 
thority granted by your Honorable Body, I 
appointed a Small Park Commission, which 
has recently submitted its first report. 
Through its work a beginning has been made 
in providing playgrounds in thickly settled 
wards by securing from owners of large tracts 
of land permission to use them temporarily 
for this purpose. Owing to the temporary 
character of the permission thus seeured, 
these playgrounds naturally are mere make- 
shifts, mere expedients doing a measure of 
good for t*^ e present, but affording no se- 
curity for the future. Unless by the means 
of constitutional amendment, the authority 
of Chicago to increase its bonded indebted- 
ness is secured, or unless the recommendation 
of the Small Park Commission that the es- 
tablishing of these small parks be transferred 
to the various park boards is acted upon by 
the Legislature during its present session, it 
will be necessary for the people of Chicago t® 
appeal to our wealthy and philanthropic fel- 
low citizens to establish these small parks and 



playgrounds as signal evidence of the charity 
and public spirit of Chicago's citizenship. I 
kn®w to-day of no public work upon which 
charitable gifts could more advantageously 
be bestowed than in the giving to the people 
of breathing spots in the overcrowded dis- 
tricts spots, where the young and old might 
flock for rest and recreation. Philanthro- 
pists may easily find in this field abundant 
opportunites for the bestowal of gifts which 
will not only benefit the community but serve 
as lasting monuments to their generosity 
and public spirit. 

In connection with this discussion of the 
small park and playground question it should 
not be out of place to mention a method of 
affording amusement to the young during the 
winter months, adopted by your Honorable 
Body some time ago at ray suggestion. A 
good substitute for the playgrounds idea in 
the winter season is found n the establish- 
ment of skating. rinks. Two years ago I asked 
and receiyed permission from your Honorable 
Body to issue free permits to deserving per- 
sons to flood vacant grounds for the purpose 
of forming skating rinks. During the first 
winter the public did not receive full notice 
of what the city was willing to do, and as a 
result but a small number of these skating 
rinks was established. During the last winter, 
however, full advantage was taken of the 
generosity of the city. Sixty odd skating 
grounds of this character were established 
within the city limits. These parks are lo- 
cated in practically all of the city wards. The 
condition on which the free use of city water 
is given is that the rink shall be absolutely 
free of use to all, and this means that many 
hundreds of children have been provided with 
opportunity for enjoying innocent amuse- 
ment. The plat submitted herewith gives a 
good idea of the geographical distribution of 
these rinks. As the public learns the ease

system are dew-ianded in all sections of the 
city. There is also demand for emergency 
hospitals to afford proper care for those suf- 
fering: from injury or suddenly stricken with 
disease, either far from home or far from a 
properly equipped hospital. The demand for 
small parks and playgrounds in the congested 
wards along the river continues. In these 
districts the children are forced by necessity 
to grow up with no other playground than 
the streets and the alleys, and the cry for 
more humane tr«atment of the city's youth is 
more insistent to-day than ever before. It is 
generally believed, and the belief is based on 
common sense, that by providing such breath- 
ing spots and recreation grounds, a long step 
will be taken toward reducing the number of 
youthful criminals. 

In 1900, when your Honorable Body, esti- 
mating the city's receipts fram taxation upon 
the assessment of 1899, figured upon an in- 
crease of revenues of approximately one and 
a half million dollars, an appropriation of 
$100,000.00 was made with which to inaugu- 
rate the system of establishing small parks in 
the congested wards. This anaount was 
counted as sufficient at least to make a 
beginning in the g®od work. The cut of the 
city's expenditures in 1900, however, of ne- 
cessity included this appropriation, and the 
city in this regard is as helpless to respond to 
the call of its citizens as ever. 

December 4, 1899, in accordance with au- 
thority granted by your Honorable Body, I 
appointed a Small Park Commission, which 
has recently submitted its first report. 
Through its work a beginning has been made 
in providing playgrounds in thickly settled 
wards by securing from owners oC large tracts 
of land permission to use them temporarily 
for this purpose. Owing to the temporary 
character of the permission thus seeured, 
these playgrounds naturally are mere make- 
shifts, mere expedients doing a measure of 
good for t' e present, but affording no se- 
curity for the future. Unless by the means 
of constitutional amendment, the authority 
of Chicago to increase its bonded indebted- 
ness is secured, or unless the recommendation 
of the Small Park Commission that the es- 
tablishing of these small parks be transferred 
to the various park boards is acted upon by 
the Legislature during its present session, it 
will be necessary for the people of Chicago t® 
appeal to our wealthy and philanthropic fel- 
low citizens to establish these small parks and 



playgrounds as signal evidence of the charity 
and public spirit of Chicago's citizenship. I 
kn®w to-day of no public work upon which 
charitable gifts could more advantageously 
be bestowed than in the giving to the people 
of breathing spots in the overcrowded dis- 
tricts spots, where the young and old might 
flock for rest and recreation. Philanthro- 
pists may easily find in this field abundant 
opportunites for the bestowal of gifts which 
will not only benefit the community but serve 
as lasting monuments to their generosity 
and public spirit. 

In connection with this discussion of the 
small park and playground question it should 
not be out of place to mention a method of 
affording amusement to the young during the 
winter months, adopted by your Honorable 
Body some time ago at my suggestion. A 
good substitute for the playgrounds idea in 
the winter season is found n the establish- 
ment of skating. rinks. Two years ago I asked 
and received permission from your Honorable 
Body to issue free permits to deserving per- 
sons to flood vacant grounds for the purpose 
of forming skating rinks. During the first 
winter the public did not receive full notice 
of what the city was willing to do, and as a 
result but a small number of these skating 
rinks was established. During the last winter, 
however, full advantage was taken of the 
generosity ol the city. Sixty odd skating 
grounds of this character were established 
within the city limits. These parks are lo- 
cated in practically all of the city wards. The 
condition on which the free use of city water 
is given is that the rink shall be absolutely 
free of use to all, and this means that many 
hundreds of children have been provided with 
opportunity for enjoying innocent amuse- 
ment. The plat submitted herewith gives a 
good idea of the geographical distribution of 
these rinks. As the public learns the ease 
with which these permits may be obtained, 
the custom of starting skating rinks will 
trow, until in the near future children in all 
portions of the city will be enabled to enjoy 
healthful and innocent winter recreation at 
practically no cost to the municipality.

Within the last year an urgent deniand has 
been made by a number of prominent young 
business men of Chicago for the establish- 
ment of a municipal lodging house in which 
the worthy poor may be housed. For years 
past in rigorous winter weather the various 
city administrations have thrown open the 
police stations to homeless wanderers, on the 
theory that no matter how debased or worth- 
less a man might be he should not be forced 
into the streets to freeze or steal while some 
slight measure of protection could be afforded 
him in one of the city's buildings. Complaint 
is made by students of economic conditions 
that this indiscriminate caretaking of the 
homeless poor is scientifically ill advised in 
the first place, and that it has resulted besides 
in a large influx of undesirable characters 
into Chicago with each recurring winter 
season. Whatever may be said of the first 
objection, I do not agree with the latter 
theory. I ascribe the character ©f Chicago's 
temporary winter population to the fact that 
this city is located in the heart of the great 
agricultural districts, where many more men 
are employed in the summer months than can 
possibly find work through the winter, as 
well as to the fact that Chicago, being a lake 
port, and navigation on the Great Lakes 
always being discontinued during the winter 
months, the men engaged in lake commerce 
seek winter homes with us, while but few are 
able to secure employment during these 
cold months. The municipal lodging house 
has already been established in a 
number of eastern cities and evidently 



has worked to the satisfaction of 
their city governments. For that reason I 
assisted the citizens who recommended the 
establishment of such an institution in 
Chicago in securing the necessary funds 
from your Honorable Body, and with the 
beginning of next winter the experiment will 
be given a practical local test. 

Year by year the necessity for the estab- 
lishment of crematories or reduction works 
for the sanitary disposition of city garbage 
becomes greater. In the past Chicago has 
followed the barbarous custom of disposing 
of this garbage by depositing it in clay holes 
or on low lying lands, utilizing for filling 
what ought to be absolutely destroyed to 
prevent it from becoming a source of dis- 
comfort and a menace to the health of the 
community. Gradually many of these clay 
holes have been filled, and thus have passed 
out of use. Residences have been built in 
such close proximity to others that the com- 
plaints of the neighbors render their 
further use as dumping grounds out of the 
question. In the meanwhile, owing to the 
poverty of the city government, no provision 
has been made for the establishment of sani- 
tary institutions for the destruction or re- 
duction of garbage. In your appropriation 
bill 9f 1900 an item of $100,000.00 was in- 
cluded with which to make a start in the 
right direction. The reduction of the city 
assessment so often referred to, required it to 
dispense with this necessity. In this year's 
appropriation bill the sum of $25,000.00 has 
been set aside for the construction of incin- 
erating or reduction works. While this sura 
will hot go far, it will at least institute a 
proper method of disposing of city garbag-e 
and serve as a means of educating the 
public to proper methods of handling city 
work. 

In connection with this subject I wish to 
call the attention of your Honorable Body to 
the garbage incinerating plant established at 
the House of Correction within the past year. 
This plant, though small, capable only of 
handling thirty tons of garbage per day, has 
been of great assistance in providing for a 
sanitary disposition of garbage in the im- 
mediate locality of the House of Correction, 
The sum appropriated in this year's appro- 
priation bill will in all likelihood be utilized 
at this point. 1 know of no better place in 
which to establish a garbage crematory or 
reduction plant than withia the grounds ®f

the House ©f Correction, both on account of 
its being: so far remoyed from other habita- 
tions as well as from the fact that among the 
inmates of the House of Correction the city 
can always find an ample number of laborers 
to perform the menial work about the plant. 
Garbage from adjoining wards may be hauled 
to the grounds in wagons, while the garbage 
in distant wards may be deposited on scows 
at convenient stations along the river and be 
brought by water to the gates of the institu- 
tion. In this manner the garbage of practi- 
cally all of Chicago except from the extreme 
north and south divisions may be handled 
cheaply and easily. Later on when conven- 
iently located garbage plants have been 
established in these districts the old barbar- 
ous custom of "dumping" garbage may be 
permitted t© pass into history. 

A year ago I secured a small appropriation 
from your Honorable Body for the establish^ 
ment of a Municipal Library. The larger 
part of the past year h*as been taken up in the 
detail work of organization, in the securing 
of pamphlets, reports and works on munici- 
pal matters, and the study of systems in 
vogue in European cities. Some months ago 
the library became suflQciently well estab- 
lished for the librarian to throw open its 
doors to general use. Since then it has been 
found a very valuable auxiliary for city of- 
ficials as well as for outsiders who are making 
a study of purely municipal matters. Up to 
the present time the library is necessarily 
somewhat crude. With each month, how- 
ever, its stock of works increases, while the 
librarian gathers new information as to works 
to be obtained and details to be covered in 
the future. The value of this adjunct to the 
municipal government is therefore increas- 
ing at a rapid pace. It will undoubtedly 
within the space of a very few years become 
one of the most valuable of city institutions. 

When this year's appropriation bill was 
under consideration, I secured the setting 
apart of a small sum with which to add a 
bureau of statistics to the other work con. 
nected with the Municipal Library. The first 
statistical report has been issued within the 
past few days, and will unquestionably serve 
a valuable purpose in affording city officials 
an opportunity to make comparative studies 
between the amount, cost, character, and ef- 
ficiency of work as done here in Chicago and 
n other world centers. 

Working under an appropriation made by 



your Honorable Body a firm of experts is to- 
day making a careful study of the Special As- 
sessment Rebate Fuads. The condition of 
these funds has long been the scandal of 
our City Government. From the day of my 
first election I have felt it a duty devolving 
upon the city administration to examine care- 
fully into the condition of these funds and to 
clean up the accounts. The citizens should 
be advised of the exact status of each war- 
rant; those to whom rebates are due should 
receive notice of the exact amount due. 
These rebates are trust funds pure and sim- 
ple. The duty devolves upon the city, even 
at this late date, to fulfill all the obligations 
of the trust. In all likelihood, the investiga- 
tion now under way will show the city largely 
in debt to its own citizens; so largely in fact 
that for some time to come the city will not 
be possessed of sufficient funds to pay these 
claims in cash. It occurs to me that as these 
are debts the city honestly owes to its tax- 
paying citizens, steps should be taken to 
secure an early liquidation of the accounts. 
I would, therefore, suggest the advisability 
of permitting citizens to enter up judgments 
by default for the amount of the rebates 
shown to be due them by the inyestigation 
now under way, if the amount as determined 
is greater than the city can settle in cash. 
By this method citizens will be enabled to 
obtain an evidence of indebtedness which, 
bearing the legal rate of interest, may be 
converted int© cash at the will of the holder. 

After four years experience in my present 
office, I am convinced that the problem of 
providing suitable city pavements has not yet 
reached solution. Of all kinds of pavements 
now in use in this city, but one is even fairly 
satisfactory, the dressed granite block pave- 
ment; and the t cost of this, as well as 
the difficulty of securing a sufficient 
supply for the use of a great city, 
may properly be urged as a reasonable ob- 
jection to it. Cedar block pavement has long 
ago demonstrated its utter unfitness for gen- 
eral use in this city. Macadam pavement, 
even though the macadam be finished wi:h 
granite top dressing, is subject to the double 
objection of being muddy in wet weather and 
dusty in dry. In addition to this it is net 
sufficiently firm to stand the heavy traffic of 
Chicago. Brick will only stand use, in Chi- 
cago, at least, on residence and light business 
streets, while asphalt, the most desirable of 
all of these pavements, is to some extent sub- 
ject to like objections. While more durable 



April S,J 



13 



[1901 



than brick, I know of no local street where it [ 
has prored its absolute worth. The ten- | 
dency of the times runs to excessive load- 
ing, and for this reason no pavement except 
the dressed granite block can be called 
thoroughly durable for Chicago use. This 
fact brings your Honorable Body face to face 
with one of two conclusions: Either that the 
size of loads should be restricted or that a 
wide tire ordinance should be passed at once. 
This latter would probably be the better way 
out of the difficulty. The width of the tire 
should be made to depend upon the size of the 
load. In this way business men would not 
be hampered in their work, while the pave- 
ments paid for by our property-owners would 
last at least for a reasonable length of time. 

For some time there has been a demand 
that where streets with car tracks are im- 
proved the space between the rails should be 
paved with the same material as the remainder 
of the streets. In a number of cases by in- 
sistence upon their meeting this demand 
of the tax-payers the present admin- 
istration has ecured such paying from 
the street car companies. It has been found, 
however, that the paving of the space between 
the rails with either asphalt or brick is far 
from satisfactory. Dearborn street, from Van 
Buren street to Polk street, and North State 
street, from Division street south, are fair 
samples of the result of this character of 
paving. The space between the rails in 
Dearborn street is paved with brick, while in 
North State street the same space is paved 
with asphalt. In neither case is the paving 
satisfactory. Wagons turning in and out of 
the rails grind deep ruts through the paving 
material. Personally I rather incline to the 
belief that the one satisfactory pavement to 
be used in the street railroad rights of way 
in streets devoted to heavy traffic is the 
dressed granite Dlock. The use of this paving 
in heavy traffic streets with the use of asphalt 
or brick in light traffic streets in addition to 
the grooved rail will obviate a great many of 
the difficulties with which Chicago property 
owners have to contend to-day. 

The Department of Public Works has 
grown so enormously in the past few years 
that at present one man as Commissioner 
should not and cannot be expected to give all 
of the various branches of work under his 
jurisdiction careful scrutiny. It has been in 
my mind for some time to advise the separa- 
tion of work in this department, and the 



establishment of two new departments in 
place of the one general Department of Pub- 
lic Works. I would recommend that an ap- 
propriate committee of your Honorable Body 
take up this question at an early date. 
It seems to me the proper method by 
which the division should be made would 
be to take all matters connected with 
the water service of Chicago from the 
Department of Public Works and es- 
tablish a new Department of Water. This 
department would include not onjy the water 
office proper, but also the opsration of exist- 
ing pumping stations as well as the construc- 
tion of new pumping stations, new tunnels, 
and the extension of water mains and water 
service pipes. In other words, everything 
connected with the drinking water of the city 
would be placed in the care of this new de- 
partment. The work remaining in the De- 
partment of Public Works would be sufficient 
fully to employ the time of any one man, 
especially unless a new special assessment 
law be passed by the Legislature constituting 
a new Board of Local Improvements and re- 
lieving the Commsssioner of Public Works 
from duty on this board . 

In all probability your Honorable Body wiill 
be called upon in the coming year to take up, 
consider and settle the much-vexed question 
of the extension of existing street railroad 
franchises. Nor is it unreasonable to say 
that the terms offered either by this or the 
succeeding Council must of stern necessity be 
accepted by the street railroad companies. 
There has been much talk of the rights of the 
companies under the so-called "ninety-nine 
year act," as well as of their determination 
as a resort to fall back upon this act and set- 
tle the question of their rights and privileges 
under it by appeal to the courts. 

There is nothing in the ninety-nine year 
act, however, to prevent the city from grant- 
ing franchises to competing companies to 
duplicate every mile of rail now laid in the 
city. Moreover, the ninety-nine year act does- 
not apply to all the old lines. Wabash 
avenue is notably excluded from the operation 
of its terms, as are also Wells street, Dear^ 
born steeet, North Clark street. South Clark 
street and Michigan avenue. For these rea- 
sons the claims of the companies under the 
so-called ninety- nine year act are neither so 
strong nor well grounded as they are at times 
made to appear. And for that reason the 
companies are not so well entrenched that 
1 they may attempt either to dictate terms to-

should not and cannot be expected to give all 
of the various branches @f work under his 
jurisdiction careful scrutiny. It has been in 
my mind for some time to advise the separa- 
tion of work in this department, and the 



establishment of two new departments in 
place of the one general Department of Pub- 
lic Works. I would recommend that an ap- 
propriate committee of your Honorable Body 
take up this question at an early date. 
It seems to me the proper method by 
which the division should be made would 
be to take all matters connected with 
the water service of Chicago from the 
Department of Public Works and es- 
tablish a new Department of Water. This 
department would include not onjy the water 
office proper, but also the operation of exist- 
ing pumping stations as well as the construc- 
tion of new pumping stations, new tunnels, 
and the extension of water mains and water 
service pipes. In other words, everything 
connected with the drinking water of the city 
would be placed in the care of this new de- 
partment. The work remaining in the De- 
partment of Public Works would be sufficient 
fully to employ the time of any one man, 
especially unless a new special assessment 
law be passed by the Legislature constituting 
a new Board of Local Improvements and re- 
lieving the Commsssioner of Public Works 
from duty on this board . 

In all probability your Honorable Body wiill 
be called upon in the coming year to take up, 
consider and settle the much-vexed question 
of the extension of existing street railroad 
franchises. Nor is it unreasonable to say 
that the terms offered either by this or the 
succeeding Council must of stern necessity be 
accepted by the street railroad companies. 
There has been much talk of the rights of the 
companies under the so-called "ninety-nine 
year act," as well as of their determination 
as a resort t© fall back upon this act and set- 
tle the question of their rights and privileges 
under it by appeal to the courts. 

There is nothing in the ninety-nine year 
act, however, to prevent the city from grant- 
ing franchises to competing companies to 
duplicate every mile of rail now laid in the 
city. Moreover, the ninety-nine year act does 
not apply to all the old lines. Wabash 
avenue is notably excluded from the operation 
of its terms, as are also Wells street, Dear^ 
born steeet, North Clark street. South Clark 
street and Michigan avenue. For these rea- 
sons the claims of the companies under the 
so-called ninety- nine year act are neither so 
strong nor well grounded as they are at times 
made to appear. And for that reason the 
companies are not so well entrenched that 
they may attempt either to dictate terms to.

the city or to refuse reasonable terms offered 
them by the city. 

Moreover, simultaneously with the expira- 
tion of the present grants of street car fran- 
chises will expire the car license ordinance. 
Should the traction companies make appeal 
to the courts for an jadjudicati®u of their 
rights and privileges under the ninety-nine 
year act, the City of Chicago could pass a 
new car license ordinance and by this means 
secure at I'^ast compensation for the use of 
the city's higTiways. That would be adequate 
linancial consideration for what the city 
gives. The other public demands could be 
sought through ordinances passed under the 
city's police powers. 

There is no desire on the part of the vast 
majority of the citizens of Chicago to occupy 
the attitude of confiscating property or re- 
pudiating obligations already assumed. The 
results of the last two mayoralty elections 
show in plain, unmistakable terms what the 
citizens believe in and insist upon as a satis- 
factory settlement of the street car franchise 
question: the public expression might be 
summed up as a demand for: 

1. Compensation to the city based upon a 
percentage of the gross receipts. 

2. A reduction of fare during the rush 
hours of the day. 

3. A betterment of accommodations. 

4. A distinct waiver of all claims under 
the ninety-nine year act. 

5. A provision for municipal acquirement 
of the properties at the expiration of the 
grant. 

The first and second points are practically 
one and the same. When a careful study of 
the question has shewn what compensation 
the companies can afford to pay, it will 
devolve upon your. Honorable Body to decide 
ihe form in which it is to be paid, whether in 
straight compensation, in a reduction of fare, 
or in both forms. 

In addition to these questions the companies 
must be required to lay the grooved rail in 
ail streets where property owners have laid 
permanent pavements, while the overhead 
trolley as well as the antiquated cable should 
be supplanted by the underground trolley at 
the very least in the district bounded by 
Twenty-second street. Western avenue and 
North avenue. 



A year ago in my annual message to your 
Honorable Body I mentioned the referendum 
idea as an essential feature of the settlenaent 
of the traction franchise question. Since 
then the Street Railroad Commission, ap- 
pointed by rae under authority granted by 
your Honorable Body, has presented its 
street railroad bill to the State legislature. 
While 1 do not give my unreserved approval 
to each item of this bill, the Commission 
anted most wisely, in my judgment, in incor- 
porating the referendum in its bill. No 
greater safeguard against the dangers of ill- 
considered action by a legislative body, no 
greater protection against the machinations 
of corrupt corporations or individuals exist 
than the submission of all important ques- 
tions to the people for their direct sanction 
and approval. By making this submission 
dependent upon the petitioning of a certain 
percentage of voters, therefere, the one pes- 
sible objection that might fairly be urged 
against it is removed. 

In my last annual message I submitted a 
list of privileges granted by the city during 
my term of ofHce for which compensation 
had been demanded. I submit herewith a 
supplementary list showing the grants made 
during the last twelve months and the com- 
pensation they carry:

MISCELLANEOUS. 

The City Council should require of the re- 
spective committees to which are assigned de- 
partment administrative work a monthly ex- 
amination and report of the work planned 
and perf®rmed and the amount of money ex- 
pended during the month. Investigations of 
this character at stated periods would stimu- 
late the employes, improve the service, and 
bring about a marked saving of money. 

The business forms and the stationery used 
to transact business should be legalized by 
ordinance, and all accounts should be class- 
ified so as to secure uniform accounts at all 
times. By these means would be prevented 
the confusion incident to each change of ad- 
ministration with the resulting installation of 
new oflBcials. 

Of every person employed in the posting of 
hand bills on any outer wall within the City 
of Chicago (whether on a public highway or 
on any lot fronting a public highway) a 
license should be required. A strict 
supervision would enable the city to reg- 
ulate the business of bill posting and 
abate in some measure the waste paper 
nuisance now proving so expensive, as 
well as disfiguring, to the city. Bill posters 
should be required to wear a numbered 
badge, that they might be readily identified 
by the police. When carelessness is shown 
in the tearing down of old bills or in partially 
pasting new bills, the license could be re- 
voked and the bill poster be prevented from 
following his occupation. 

All b®oks of account should be audited 
semi-annually; an official report, prepared 
annually by an outside accounting concern, 
employed especially for that purpose, should 
be given to the public. 

Results accomplished, plans under consid- 
eration, and suggestions for improvements in

methods, are discussed in the following re- 
Tiew of the business transacted in the prin- 
cipal departments: 

■\VATEK BUREAU. 

During the two years past the canduct of 
the Bureau of Water has been most grati- 
fying, not only to the administration but to 
the public at large. The improved facilities 
offered the patrons of this important branch 
of the city's government have been highly 
appreciated by the public, as is evidenced by 
communications of a complimentary nature 
from numerous sources. 

Notwithstanding the fact that the water 
rates were reduced in the years 1S98 and 1899 
by approximately $400,000.00, the revenue has 
steadily increased as a result of the applica- 
tion of careful business methods. Results 
are mere forceful than comments. In the 
year 1891 the receipts of the bureau were 
$2,331,286.20; the expenses of collection 
amounted to 1303,879.86, the expenses being 
thirteen (13^) per cent of the total receipts. 
During the year 1900 the receipts were |3,i!48,- 
411.36; the expenses of collection amounted 
to $264,648.64; the percentage of expense of 
receipts being 8.1, or a difference of 4.9 per 
cent. 

THE WATER SYSTEM. 

The extensive improvements in the water 
supply system, commenced in 1897, 
were continued during the last two years. 
The additions to the system in that 
time comprise about seventy -one (71) 
miles of mains, thirteen and one-tenth (13.1) 
miles of tunnels, seven hundred and ninety- 
seven (797) hydrants, and eight hundred and 
thirty-seven (837) valves. The capacity of 
the pumping stations has been increased by 
©ne hundred and twenty million (120.000,000) 
gallons daily, and the yearly pumpage has 
been increased over eighteen billion gallons. 

The placing in operation of the new pump- 
ing stations at Springfield avenue and at 
Central Park avenue marks the practical 
completion of the great auxiliary tunnel 
and water systen^ authorized in 1895, This 
system consists of 4.3 miles of 10-foot tun- 
nel. 8 miles of 8-foot tunnel, the Caiter H. 
Harrison Crib at two and one-half miles in- 
take, and two pumping stations of a ca- 
pacity of 120,000,000 gallons of water daily. 



The cost of this work was in round figures 
$4,000,000.00. 

BRIDGES AND VIADUCTS, 

Notwithstanding the small appropriation 
for bridge and viaduct work and their bad 
condition, practically all the bridges and 
viaducts, with the exception of those that 
should be removed immediately, have been 
put in good condition. All the larger down 
town bridges have been repaved and repainted. 
The railroad companies during the past two 
years, through the efforts of the administra- 
tion, have been brought to expend seventy- 
three thousand ($73,000.00) dollars in the re- 
pair of viaduct spanning their tracks. This 
ameunts to a practical confession ©n the part 
of the railroads of their obligation to keep 
these viaducts permanently in repair. 

Plans of a new design for bascule bridges 
have been prepared and contracts for three 
such bridges let. 

BOARD or LOCAL IMPROVEMENTS, 

Since September last the Board of Local 
Improvements has had no public hearing. 
We have believed that, in view of the present 
session of the Legislature, public improve- 
ments to be paid for by special assessments 
should be delayed until that body has had an 
opportunity to consider certain phases of the 
present special assessment laws which oper- 
ate to oppress property owners. 

The changes recommended by the Beard of 
Local Improvements are, briefly: No war- 
rant to be placed in collection until the work 
is completed, accepted and abatements made 
of the entire excess, so that at no time would 
property owners be called upon to pay more 
than their share of the exact cost of the im- 
provement; interest not to commence until 
the date of final completion and acceptance 
of the work ; all court services to be rendered 
without charge against the property owners 
or the city. In cases ot special assessments 
for sidewalks, drains, water service pipes, 
lamp posts, etc., where the improvement is 
not expensive, the charges by the court at the 
present time constitute a large percentage of 
the costs. 

The failure to hold public hearings will not 
materially delay proposed improyements 
althougn it may require an increased force in

the office of Special Assessments for a short • 
peri©d in the early spring immediately after 
the changes have been made in the law. 

SAMITARY CANAL PROBLEMS. 

While the people of the city are to he con- 
gratulated on the successful opening of the 
Sanitary Canal, the authorities charged with 
that duty will not have discharged their full 
responsibility until they have corrected the 
erils growing out of the plans executed by 
them. 

Tbat portion of the Chicago River used for 
purposes of sanitation must be regarded as . 
much as part of the canal as the main sanitary 
channel south of Kobey street. In fact, this 
was recognized in early action of the Sani- 
tary District, shown by a resolution passed 
by its Board and transmitted to the City 
Ceuncil at the time the Board assumed con- 
trol of the Chicago River and all its branches 
for the purposes of its work. 

The Sanitary District, at my suggestion, 
has passed an ordinance to remove center- 
pier bridges from State street, Randolph 
street, Harrison street. Polk street, Eigh- 
teenth street, Main street and Ashland ave- 
nue, and to substitute in their places center- 
channel bridges of the bascule type; in 
additi@n, they are now taking steps to widen 
the river at various points, with a view to 
giving relief from the evils referred to. It is, 
however, confronted with the same embar- 
rassing financial restrictions that the city com- 
plains of, and from present appearances it is 
likely so to delay these improvements that 
the increased cost of navigation may divert 
trade from the Chicago River; when once 
diverted, this will with difficulty be regained. 

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH. 

During the last two years the work of the 
Health Department has reached its highest 
standard of efficiency. Its monthly bulle- 
tins, in which are given the detailed reports 
of vital statistics, together with the results 
of the department's investigations in the 
fields of sanitation and preventive medicine, 
are highly valued by the press, the public, 
and by health officials throughout the world. 

The value of the work of the department is 
evidenced in enforcing proper sanitary regu- 
lations, in the centrol and regulation of 
undertakers in handling the funerals of i 



those who die of contagious diseases; 
in the development of safe and effi- 
cient vaccination, and through it the practi- 
cal control of small-pox; in the prompt and 
rel able aid furnished to physicians in diag- 
nosing disease and the treatment of diph- 
theria by which the death rate from this 
particular scourge has been so greatly re- 
duced; in the protection of the city against 
danaage through the examination of the 
waters of the Illinois Valley for the Sanitary 
District; in the inspection of milk, ice, meat, 
and food products; in the sanitary inspection 
of dwelling' and other buildings as t© ven- 
tilation, light, plumbing, and drainage; in 
the medical inspection of schools, and in the 
daily analysis of the public water supply and 
the warnings t© the public in advance to 
guard against impurities. These are among 
the chief features of the department's achieve- 
ments during the past two years, achievements 
which place it at the head of the municipal 
health departments of this country. 

The growing and beneficial influence of the 
Department of Health is fully appreciated by 
the public and is reflected in a steadily de- 
creasing mortality rate, especially among' 
children. 

The success and methods of the department 
are frequently commended editorially by 
medical and sanitary journals throughout the 
country and even abroad, while ihe depart- 
ment enjoys the universal approval of the 
medical profession of he city. 

DEPARTMENT OF TRACK ELEVATION. 

. Up to December 31, 1900, 318.61 miles of 
railroad tracks were elevated and depressed 
within the corporate limits of the city, elimi- 
nating 389 street grade crossings, at an ap- 
proximate estimated cost of $17,155,000.00. 

Ordinances have been |;)assed by the City 
Council and accepted by the different rail- 
way companies for 227.5 miles more of rail- 
way tracks to be elevated, which, when com- 
pleted, will eliminate 185 more grade cross- 
ings; the estimated cost of this additional 
' work is $9,958,000.00, so that when the entire 
work mentioned above has been fully andi 
finally completed there will have been ele- 
vated 546.11 miles of railway tracks, elinii- 
nating- 574 grade crossings, at a total esti- 
mated cost of $27,113,000.00. 

There have also been prepared and pre

DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICITY. 

The important work of establishing a 
municipal street lighting system, started in 
1887, has been followed closely during the 
year 1900, with the result that 787 arc lamps 
have been added to the system and conduits 
placed in different streets for the erection of 
235 lamps. The shortage in the appropriation 
made it impossible to place these in service 
before the end of the year. This gives the 
city a total of 4,300 arc lamps now in opera- 
tion from its municipal lighting system. The 
cost of operation, slightly higher than in 
1899, was due entirely to the increased price 
of coal. The price of coal was 30 per cent 
above that of the previous year. The other 
items of expense incurred in the 6peration 
were substantially reduced. 

Numerous changes have been made in the 
lighting of the city. The gasoline lighting, 
formerly perf®rmed with 12-candle power 
lamps, has been changed to 60-candle power 
lamps, giving a much better light at a re- 
duced cost of 138,000.00 per year. The in- 
crease in the municipal lighting system and 
the changes in the gasoline lighting have 
made it possible for the city to furnish and 
maintain on its streets, every night during 
the year, a total of 11,000,000 candle power 
at a cost o£ 1906,000.00, as against 3,800,000 
candle power in 1896 at a cost of 11,069,000.00. 

The removal of poles and wires from 
streets being permanently improved has been 
an important work of the department. A 
total of three and one-half miles of pole lines 
has beeh buried. 

To continue this important work and to re- 
duce the expense which it entails upon the 
city and the companies interested, an ordi- 
nance has been submitted to the Council re- 
quiring the construction of a combination 
conduit system in such streets as may here- 



after be improved with a permanent form of 
paving. These conduits are to be jointly con- 
structed and occupied, the cost of construc- 
tion being divided pro rata for the space 
occupied among the different companies. 

The construction of this combination sys- 
tem will do more to clear the streets of ob- 
jectionable poles than any possible separate 
action by the city and the indiyidual compa- 
nies. Plans are now being completed for the 
construction of several systems of combina- 
tion conduits in important streets. 

The careful management of the Electric In- 
spection Bureau has made it possible again to 
reduce the fees charged for this class of work. 
This is the third reduction made in three 
years, and aggregates a full 40 per cent of 
fees formerly charged to the public. 

It is the intention to institute several 
changes in the existing lighting of the city, 
which will materially increase the eflScieney 
of the lighting system, while reducing the 
total cost to an annual expenditure not ex- 
ceeding $850,000.00. 

It is recognized that municipal lighting is 
one of the most important of a city's public 
duties, and the changes proposed-in the light- 
ing are for the purpose of securing an equal 
distribution of the lights and to give to some 
sections of the city benefits which they have 
not as yet had and which conditions did not 
permit them to obtain. 

POLICE DEPARTMENT. 

The record of the work performed by the 
Department of Police during the past year, 
as presented by the General Superintendent 
of Police in his annual report, effectually re- 
futes the mendacious statements heretofore 
made as to the undue prevalence of crime in 
Chicago and the alleged inefficiency of the 
Police Department in suppressing it. The 
perpetrators of all serious crimes have, ex- 
cepting in a few instances, been arrested, 
and those who escaped and fled the city 
are being diligently sought for. The sta- 
tistics of the department show there was less 
crime during the past year than for a number 
of years past, yet the reports from the beads 
of all branches of the department show a 
marked increase in the amount of work per- 
formed by each member. While the average 
number of policemen per square mile is less 
in Chicago than in New York, Philadelphia, 
St. Louis and other large cities, the average 



April 8.J 



20 



[1901 



number of arrests per member is considler- 
ably larger than in tliese cities, showing con- 
clusively the activity @f the department in 
suppressing crime. 

The committee of prominent citizens ap- 
pointed to distribute the Lambert Tree and 
Carter H. Harrison medals to members of 
the department performing the most dis- 
tinguished acts of bravery during each of the 
past four years, found it a most diflQcult task 
to select from the large number of reports 
submitted to them the oflScers who by their 
bravery were entitled to receive the medals; 
from so many acts, appearing almost equally 
meritorious, a choice was not easily made. 
After careful study of all these reports final 
selections were made, and the medals will be 
presented with public ceremonies at an early 
date. 

THE FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

The Fire Department of Chicago, conceded 
to be the best in the world, maintains the 
fame it has earned. The department has been 
increased during the past year by the addi- 
tion of four engine companies, one hose com- 
pany and one hook and ladder company, the 
latter taking the place of a similar company 
fermerly ©ccupied by the Pullman's Palace 
Car Company. Two engine houses com- 
menced in 1899 were c®mpleted during the 
year and occupied by engine companies Nos. 
88 and 89; the other new companies are tem- 
porarily in leased quarters. A contract has 
been let for an additional engine house, 
which will soon be completed. The record of 
the past year shows a decided decrease from 
the figures ©f the previous year. Number of 
alarms decreased from 7811 to 7095, the num- 
ber of fires from 6031 to 5503, and the 
loss from S4,534,065.00 to .12,213,699.00. The 
casualties consisted of 92 injured and 46 
killed; 74jpersons in peril were rescued by 
members ®f the department. 

CITY collector's DEPARTMENT. 

In the Collector's Department the year 
1900 shows a favorable increase as compared 
with 1899, the receipts for all licenses being, 
for the year 1900, §3,723,029.77, and for the 
year 1899, §3,637,399.68. 

The increased activity in street improve- 
ments is shown in the special assessment 
collection, the amounts collected being, for 
the year 1900. §895,170.01, and for the year 
1899, §771,364.89. 



Building licenses and permits have fallen 
behind 25 per cent, owing to the labor 
troubles. 

The doubling of the tax on foreisrn insur- 
ance companies, passed by your Honorable 
Body (now 2 per cent) , has. enlarged the re- 
ceipts from $61,456,87 in 1899 to $149,127.39 
last year. 

The total collections received for the year 
1899 and 1900 were $4,526,305.94 and $4,815,- 
150.57 in the order named, an improvement 
I of $288,844.63. 

I A good percentage of the increase in li- 
I cense comes from the street car item. A 
vigorous effort has been made to wipe off all 
the indebtedness of some of the companies, 
inherited from former administrations. 
Many of the larger transportation companies 
also have been m de to increase their pay- 
ments, and the last delinquent company is now 
in the hands of the Corporation Counsel. 

Comparing this feature alone with the 
methods in vogue heretofore in the Collec- 
tor's Department is a good reason for c®n- 
gratulation. 

The annual return of delinquents in special 
assessments covered ninety-six volumes, as 
compared with eighty-five last year. During 
the first three months of this year, $150,000 
of abatements were deducted, giving the 
property owners the immediate benefits in- 
stead of a long, tedious wait for their 
rebates. 

STREET RAILW^AY COMMISSION. 

The Street Railway Commission, appointed 
by me January 3, 1900, under authority of 
a Council resolution of December 18, 1899, 
submitted a report to the City Council De- 
cember 17, 1900. Accompanying the report 
was a draft of a street railway bill, which 
the City Council, at its meeting of January 
14, 1901, endorsed and. requested the General 
Assembly to enact into law. The bill is now 
pending before the legislature. 

The commission is to be commended for 
the excellent work it has performed. 

CIVIL SERVICE. 

ThrDugh the work of the civil service 
during the past year 2,764 ©flflcial and 3,000 
labor applicatiens have been filed, making a 
total ©f 5,764, which, added to the previous 
number, make a grand total of 62,773 appli- 
I cations filed since the civil service law went 



April 8,J 



21 



[1901 



into operation. Of this total 34,765 were for { 
positions in the ©fficial service and 28,008 were 
for positions in the labor service. This does 
not include those who applied for promotion 
examinations, as under the rules those elig- 
ble to compete in a promotion examination 
must apply in person and register their 
names in a " book provided for that purpose 
in the office of the commission." 

Total number of examinations held the 
past year is 111, of which 71 were in the 
official service (original entrance), 25 In the 
skilled labor service and two in unskilled 
labor (see Sections 5 and 6 of Rule XV.); 
also 13 promotien examinations as follows: 
Lieutenants Fire Department, lieutenants 
Police Department (2), cement testers, chiefs 
of battalion Fire Department, detective 
sergeants Police Department, messengers 
(2d grade), superintendents branch reading 
rooms, public library, tellers Bureau of 
Water, clerks (Grade 3), mechanical engi- 
neers, pumping station (Grade 5), general 
foreman school construction and repairs 
Board of Education, and elevator starters. 

Total number of candidates who appeared 
for promotion examinations was 1,077. The 
total number of those who passed cannot be 
aseertained, as two of the minor examina- 
tions are incomplete. 

Number of candidates who were examined 
in original entrance examinations was 2,957; 
number who passed, 1 ,954, making a percent- 
age of 66.08. The number of certifications of 
-appointment to official service was 1,146 ; in 
the labor service, 1,710; total, 2,856. 

DEPARTMENT OF SUPPLIES. 

The report of the Business Agent shows 
that there were issued during the year 1900, 
•eighteen thousand one hundred and sixty- 
four (18,164) orders for materials, supplies 
a,nd repair work, involving an expenditure of 
$607,208.58. A comparison with business of 
the previous year shows an increase of eight 
hundred and twenty-two (822) in the number 
of orders issued, but a decrease of 18,700.56 
in the total sum expended through the de- 
partment. The average expenditure involved 
in the year's transactions was 1=33.43 as com- 
pared with $35.52 for the year 1899, showing 
an average decrease of $2.09. The year's 
business as thus summarized includes pur- 
chases of merchandise for the warehouse 
maintained by the department, as well as of 
stationery and office supplies carried n stock 



{ in the City Hall. The warehouse stock in- 
cludes materials and supplies which are in 
regular and constant use and which are de- 
livered upon requisition and in small lots to 
the several departments. There were issued 
during the year eighteen hundred and ten 
(1,810) orders on the warehouse, most of 
theia including lists of small items and repre- 
senting a cost of $18,070.01. 

The cost of maintaining the Department of 
Supplies during the year 1900, including 
salaries, rent of warehouse, equipment and 
all other expenses, was $15,826.74. During 
the same period the department received 
from the sale of scrap iron, old machinery 
and various waste materials the sum of 
$10,046.30. 

An ordinance recently passed requires the 
Business Agent to purchase uniform cloth 
under contract, and to sell the same to fire- 
men and policemen. Under this ordinance, 
the city's uniformed men are insured mater- 
ial of superior quality at the lowest cost. 

It is the purpose of the Department of Sup- 
plies to guard the city's small disbursements 
and get full value for all sums expended. To 
this end the work of the department is con- 
ducted on strict business principles. Com- 
petition is free, and the records of all trans- 
actions are complete. 

COKPORATION COUNSELS' OETICE. 

The volume and importance of the business 
transacted by the Corporation Counsel's 
office during the last two yeirs has been 
unequaled in the history of the city. The 
city's interests have been protected at every 
point, and the city's rights have been fought 
for and obtained in every instance necessary. 
The integrity of the Civil Service Law has 
been successfully maintained. The local op- 
tion and prohibition laws have been defended 
and sustained. The city's rights on the Lake 
Front have been protected in the Supreme 
Court of the United States against claims to 
and encroachments upon the city's lands 
valued at millions of dollars. Track eleva- 
tion has been sustained, and many thousands 
of dollars have been brought into the City 
Treasury by legal proeeedings against delin- 
quent corporations. 

Respectfully submitted.

Mayor.

the term of one year from the Thirty-first

By consent. Aid, Bennett presented the fol- 
lowing resolution : 

Whereas, It is found in the recent redis-

wards, as required by law, that two of such 
new wards— namely, the Seventh and Thirty- 
first — have no hold-ovef Aldermen residing 
therein, while two other wards — namely the 
Second and Twenty-first — have each two hold- 
over Aldermen residing therein ; and 

Whereas, At the recent city election the 
said Seventh and Thirty-first Wards, in order 
to provide for the two Aldermen to which 
each ward is entitled under the law, nomi- 
nated and elected in each two Aldermen, one 
for the full term of two years, and one for 
the term of one year to fill the vacancy in.

[L901 



their respective representations in this body 
caused by such redistricting ; and 

Whereas, The said aldermen so respect- 
tively elected by said wards for said one year 
or short term, namely, Charles J. Fahndrich, 
representing the Seventh Ward, and Nicholas 
J. Nagel, representing the Thirty-first Ward, 
have received their certificates of election, 
which have been presented to the Council, 
and have filed their respective oaths of oflBce 
with the City Clerk of Chicago, as required 
by law, and are therefore duly elected and 
lawful members of the Council of the City of 
Chicago; and 

Whereas, Under the law this Council 
shall consist ©f but seventy members, being 
two from each of the thirty five wards of 
said City of Chicago; and 

Whereas, There are now seventy-two 
members of this Council, or two more than 
the legal number, resulting from and as a 
consequence of said redistricting, being two 
hold-over members each from the present 
Second and Twenty-first Wards — namely, 
Thomas J. Dixon and William H. Thompson 
from the Second Ward, and Julius G©ldzier 
and John Minwegen from the Twenty-first 
Ward; and 

Whereas, The law requires where after 
such redistricting there shall be two or 
more Aldermen, who hold over in the same 
ward, that then and in such case it shall be 
determined by lot in the presence of the 
City Council, in such manner as they shall 
direct, which of said Aldermen shall hold 
over for such ward ; now therefore, be it 

Resolved, By the City Council of Chicago^ 
that the City Clerk be and he is hereby au- 
thorized and directed to forthwith prepare 
two paper ballots of equal size and character, 
upon one of which he shall write the word 
"Alderman;" that he shall then fold said 
ballots in the same way, but so as that the 
writing hereby directed to fee placed thereon 
cannot be seen ; that he shall then place said 
ballots in a hat; that the said Thomas J- 
Dixon and William H. Thompson shall each 
then draw from said hat in the order named, 
in the presence of the Council, one of the said 
ballots, or upon their refusal or neglect so to 
do the City Clerk is hereby authorized and 
directed to draw said ballets, and the one 
drawing the ballot upon which is inscribed 
the word "Alderman" shall be the legal 
hold-over Alderman for the said Second 



Ward according t© law; that the City Clerk 
shall then prepare two other ballots, in all 
particulars like the two last described, and 
place them in a hat; that the said Julius 
Goldzierand John Minwegen shall each then 
draw from the said hat, in the order named, 
in the presence of said Council, one of said 
/ballots, or upon their refusal or neglect so to

directed to draw said ballots, and the one 
drawing the ballot upon which is inscribed 
the word "Alderman" shall be the legal

The following communication and ordi- 
nance: 

Mayor's Office, / 
April 22nd, 1901. \ 

To the Honorable^ the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I beg leave to submit here- 
with an ordinance and plan for the elevation 
of certain public streets and thoroughfares in 
the City of Chicago, particularly that portion 
of Kinzie street and West Kinzle street, be- 
tween North Franklin street and Milwaukee 
avenue, and of Canal street, from Lake street 



Api-il 2:i,J 

t ) Kinzie street. The object of this elevation 
is to do away with the'«grade crossings at 
these points. 

During- tlie past year numerous orders and 
resolutions have been presented to and passed 
by your Honorable Body calling for the ele- 
vation of all the so-called Kinzie street tracks 
as far east as the river. It seems to me that 
such elevation would be detrimental to the 
best interests of the City of Chicago. In the 
tirst place conditions have become so estab- 
lished by many years' use at these points, 
that such track elevation could not be had 
without seriously incommoding a large num- 
ber of prosperous and important business 
ventures and at the same time subjecting the 
City of Chicago to innumerable suits for 
damages, the claims for which, in the majority 
of instances, would appear well founded. 

In addition to this the elevation of these 
railroad tracks would carry with it the de- 
pression of the streets; in other words it 
would be necessary to remove all of the pres- 
ent viaducts running from the Union depot 
to Kinzie street, and at the same time to place 
the bridges at the street grade now estab- 
lished east ana west of these viaducts. The 
result of this would be the placing of import- 
ant bridges at so low a grade that the passage 
of every tug and small boat up and down the 
Chicago River would necessitate the opening 
of these bridges ; in other words the bridge 
nuisance, which has practically been removed 
at these points through the construction of 
double track bridges, operated by electricity, 
would again come to life seriously to incon- 
venience the citizens and business houses of 
Chicago.* 

In the interest of the citizens of Chicago, 
as well as to save the lives and limbs of thous- 
ands of men, whom business forces to cross 
these various grade crossings at the present 
time, it is absolutely necessary some steps 
should be taken by your Honorable Body to 
do away with the dangerous grade crossings, 
as they exist to-day. Chicago has made great 
advances in the matter *of removing grade 
crossings in various parts of the city, so that 
to-day practically the most dangerous cross- 
iags we have to contend with in the entire 
city are located at these points. As it is not 
advisable to remove these grade crossings by 
track elevation, but one thing remains for the 
city to do and that is to bring about an eleva- 
tion of the roadways themselves. 

For that reason, at the suggestion of some 



i [1901 

e 

prominent citizens of rjhicago, I hare had th 
accompanying plan and ordinance prepared, 
which I would ask to have submitted to the 
Track Elevation Committee with instructions 
to report upon it at the earliest possible date. 

The present ordinance only provides for the 
elevation of the roadways from Desplaines 
street east. I have been over the ground, 
however, with the Aldermen of the ward in 
which these tracks are located and agree with 
them it is perfectly feasible to carry this 
roadway elevation west as far as Halsted 
street, whence it could be brought down to 
the street grade. At this point track eleva- 
tion could begin, with the result that all of the 
grade crossings from Ada street eas could 
be removed with but one street, namely, 
Green street, b..ing closed by the carrying out 
of the plan. 

This matter is so urgent I think it should 
receive the earliest possible consideration at 
the hands of your Honorable Body. 

Respectfully, 
Carter H. Harrison, 
Mayor. 

Whereas, It is necessary for the conven- 
ience and safety of the public using certain 
public streets and thoroughfares in the City 
of Chicago, and particularly that portion of 
Kinzie street and West Kinzie street, be- 
tween North Franklin street and Milwaukee 
avenue, and Canal street, from Lake street 
to Kinzie street, that the plane of said streets 
be elevated so that the traveling public be 
not required to cross steam railroad tracks 
at grade ; and. 

Whereas. It is necessary in order to 
effectually carry out the purposes of the 
several ordinances requiring the elevation of 
steam railroad tracks, and particularly the 
purpose of an ordinance requiring the elev- 
tion, among other steam railroad tracks, of 
the railroad tracks of the Chicago and N©rth- 
western Railway Company and the Pittsburg, 
Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis Railway 
Company, that a viaduct or elevated roadway 
be constructed on Kinzie street connecting 
with the present Milwaukee avenue viaduct 
and running thence easterly, including the

[1901 



approach thereto, to North Franklin street; 
and that a viaduct or elevated roadway be 
constructed on North Canal street connect- 
ing with said viaduct or elevated r®adway on 
Kinzie street and running thence south, in- 
cluding the approach thereto to Lake street, 
and also that a bridge of the bascule type be 
constructed across the North Branch of the 
Chicago River to be operated in cennection 
with said elevated roadways; now, there- 
fore, 

Be it ordained ty tlie City Council of the City 
of Chicago: 

Section 1. That the Chicago and North- 
western Railway Company and the Pittsburg,

Mayor's Office, ( 
April 22, 1901. \ 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City 
of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I transmit herewith a draft 
of an ordinanxie repealing the special ordi- 
nances under which the South Chicago City 
Railway Company is operating. These spe- 
cial ordinances were granted on condition 
that the company pay an annual license fee 
of fifty dollars per car, and that the Presi- 
dent, or other otBcer of the company, make 
certain quarterly statements in reference 
thereto. With one exception, the statements 
actually made are not in conformity with the 
terms of the ordinances, and the payments 
made probably do not exceed fifty per cent of 
the amount actually due. The attention of 
the company has been frequently called to 
this matter, but without effect. I therefore 
submit the accompanying draft of an ordi- 
nance repealing the special ordinances under 
which the company is operating, and request 
that it be referred to the proper Committee. 

Respectfully, 
Carter H. Harrison, 
Mayor. 

Whereas, The City Council of the City ®f 
Chicago heretofore passed the following spe- 



cial ordinances granting to the South Chicago 
City Railway Company the right to construct 
and operate a street railway in and upon cer- 
tain streets in the City of Chicago: 

An ordinance passed November 2, 1891, en- 
titled "An ordinance authorizing the South 
Chicago City Railway Company to construct 
a street railway on Commercial avenue. 
Seventy-ninth street, Cheltenham place, Buf- 
falo avenue, Eighty-seventh street, Superior 
avenue. Eighty-third street, Ontari© avenue,. 
Coles avenue. Seventy-first street, Yates ave- 
nue, and One Hundred and Sixth street, and 
to operate its cars on its present tracks fey 
other than animal power;" 

An ordinance passed October 10, 1892, en- 
titled "An ordinance authorizing the Calu- 
met Electric Street Railway Company and 
the South Chicago City Railway Company to 
construct and operate jointly a street railway 
on St©ny Island avenue. Sixty-seventh street 
and Seventy-ninth street;" 

An ordinance passed March 4, 1895, entitled 
"An ordinance authorizing the South Chicago 
City Railway Company to construct atfc^-, 
operate a street railway on Seventieth street^ 
Addison avenue, Seventy-first street. Seventy- 
fifth street, Ninety-fifth street, Indiana boule- 
vard, Avenue K, Torrence avenue. One 
Hundred and Fourteenth street, Sheridan

nue and Howard avenue ;" and 

An ordinance passed June 8, 1899, entitled 
"An ordinance authorizing the South Chicago- 
City Railway Company to construct and 
operate a street railway on Sixty-fourth, 
street and Madison avenue ;" and 

Whereas, The privileges conferred by the- 
aforesaid ordinances were granted upon the 
express condition that said company should 
pay to the City of Chicago certain annual car 
license fees, and upon the further condition 
that the President or other officer of the 
company should file with the Comptroller of 
the City of Chicago certain quarterly state- 
ments, under oath, in reference to said car 



April 22,1

[1901 



license fees and the number of round trips 
made by the cars of said company; and 

WHEKEA.S, The said company, although in 
the continuous enjoyment ®f the priviieg^es 
o^ranted in and by the aforesaid ordinances, 
has never complied with the aforesaid con- 
ditions in reference t® car license fees, in that 
the President or other officer of said company 
has never, except for one period, filed with 
the City Comptroller a statement under oath' 
which conformed with the terms of the afore- 
said conditions; and 

Whereas, The amounts paid by the afore- 
said company as car license fees were much 
less than the sum actually due the city as 
such car license fees under the terms of the 
aforesaid ordinances ; and 

Whereas, The said company, although 
often requested by the City Collector and the 
Corporation Counsel of the City of 
Chicago, has refused and still refuses 
to cause the President or other ofilcer 
of said company to make proper statements 
under oath in reference to car license fees as 
provided by the terms of the aforesaid ordi- 
nances, or, in the alternative, to allow the 
City Collector to make an examination of 
such books of the said coiupany as certain 
information relative to the numbef of round 
trips made by said company's cars; therefore, 

. £e it ordained by the City Co2c?tcil of the City

operate a street railway ©n Seventieth street, 
Addison avenue. Seventy-first street. Sev-

An ordinance passed June 8, 1899, entitled 
"An ordinance authorizing the South Chi- 
cago City Railway Company to construct and
